1 / 7 The Lord Of The Rings: The Return of The King is set to debut on Nickelodeons TV on December 1, 2018.
The network is also planning a new series about the trilogy.
The show, which will be made by New Line Cinema and Paramount Pictures, will follow two friends in the middle of the desert on a journey to the West.
The characters will be set in Middle-earth and will be voiced by actor Stephen Fry, who also plays Bilbo Baggins in the books of the Lord of The Rings series.
The first two episodes will be directed by Peter Jackson and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, who is returning as the director of the new movie.
“We’re going to make a big movie that you can see,” Jackson said.
“It’s going to be a very epic movie.”
Nickelodeont is also expected to produce a new live-Action TV series about The Hobbit, based on the fantasy novels.
The Hobbit film series will air in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
The new series is slated to be called The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and will follow the characters on their quest to get to Middle-Earth.
“I’m going to do an adaptation of Return of Mordor, which is the Lord Of the Rings series,” Jackson told Entertainment Weekly.
“And we’re going do a series about Frodo, the Hobbit’s nemesis, which I wrote and directed, and that’s a very big project that we’re trying to finish.”
He added, “I want it to be very different from Return of Baggins.”
The Hobbit movie series will star Idris Elba, who will play Frodo Baggins.
Idris also starred in the hit series, which starred Liam Neeson, Mark Hamill, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen, Sam Rockwell, and others.
“This is something that I’m excited about, I think, for a lot of reasons,” Jackson continued.
“There’s a lot to be said for making something very different and exciting.
It’s not going to tell a certain story, it’s not a specific story. “
The Hobbit is a film, a story, and I want it very much to be about the characters.
It’s not going to tell a certain story, it’s not a specific story.
It can be a standalone film.
It just has to be something that makes people smile and make people want to come back to it.”
The Hobbit series will premiere on Nickelodes on December 6.
